Welcome Message

Dear Friends


Time flies. It seemed like yesterday when I took over in 2012 as President. I am glad that during the last 3 years, together with my Council, we were able to organize one public seminar on Ageing Well, in 2013 and two major conferences, the Annual Scientific Conference on Ageing (ASCA) in 2014 and 2015. It was challenging but we succeeded. Thanks to everyone inside and outside of Council. Could not do what we did if not for the support of members.

 


There is one unfinished business however, which is to request members help to sell the 3706 copies of books on Ageing in Singapore the next 50 years. It is being sold at an affordable price of $10 and gives the things to do to age well. Please help to promote the book to all your friends. With that done, we would swell the Society funds by another $36,000. So we need helping hands to sell the book. For members and participants at the Seminar to be held after the AGM -- stemming the rising tide of dementia, we are pleased to announce a a copy is given free to each participants
I would like in this Annual Report to thank Mr Benny Lim, Mr Raymond Lim, and Mr Dennis Lim for the continuing support of the Gerontological Society of Singapore. We in the Society are grateful. Together we will further the vision of Mr Henry Lim, which is to use the Society as a platform to change mindsets, young and old. Ageing should be a celebration not a despair, provided we learn to age well.
We also want to take this opportunity to thank and honour two long serving members of the Society who have made significant contributions. They are Prof Kua Ee Heok and Mr Laurence Wee. Their selfless giving and visionary leadership have steered this Society to even greater heights. Henceforth, at this coming Annual General Meeting in August, we will be conferring the Lifetime Achievement Award to the two of them.
Fellow members, we have come a long for a small society with a big vision. Let us come together on the 22 August to celebrate our humble success and also our nation's 50th Birthday.
We look forward to seeing you all there!

Best Wishes
Associate Professor Goh Lee Gan
President, Gerontological Society
